A Maximum Entropy Approach to Natural Language Processing
by A. L. Berger, S. A. Della Pietra, V. J. Della Pietra
Publisher: Association for Computational Linguistics 1996
Number of pages: 36
The authors describe a method for statistical modeling based on maximum entropy. They present a maximum-likelihood approach for automatically constructing maximum entropy models and describe how to implement this approach efficiently, using as examples several problems in natural language processing.

A concise introduction to logic programming and the logic-programming language Prolog both as vehicles for understanding elementary computational linguistics and as tools for implementing the basic components of natural-language-processing systems.

The major focus of this book is on the processing of the orthographic forms of natural language utterances and text. Most of the book deals with the parsing and understanding of natural language, much less on the production of it.
